a day or two for staying current for the noise really for i'm ditto bore and get to the top would i go for them all to get or dine very it's a lesson. i guess i would hate to be judged could you imagine having to take your driving taste of the day you know and the car some one taste you gave yeah it's horrible yeah so what happens in the talent shows. just. talented the they haven't got the guts to stand up in front of an audience and say yeah so it's easy to say oh that's not good and you're not good people get very nervous but he's. a very scary thing but i think the kids who do that stuff it's maybe the only they have to try and get into the music industry some of them want to get one device where i'm from gets.

revolution and they should be enjoying this being part of that whatever that musical revolution as it is than set out and be your soul or reggae or whatever that's what they should look not don't listen to me. i thought this isn't how they come in and how they come to his embassy an offer like oh yeah i'm gonna come but. yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah no yeah. ok if you. don't know it's come to i'm full madonna instrument go on and that's how i did you a front said no on the dog a while back. to texas off to come out. again amid saying now. you.

mandates of the refugee quotas for member states. after some late night horse trading republicans in the us congress have finally unveiled the huge tax reform as a president yesterday if tax reform passes taxpayers will see more money in their paychecks beginning in february with support from republicans the bill is all but guaranteed approval next week just in time to give president donald trump the christmas legislative trial of he's been seeking. four palestinians have been killed in clashes with israeli forces in gaza and the west bank the violence came during fresh protests against president trump's recognition of jerusalem as israel's capital dozens more wounded. police in toronto canada are treating as suspicious the deaths of a pharmaceutical billionaire and his wife at their home dairy sherman seen here in a laboratory of his company up attacks made his money from manufacturing generic
drugs no further details about the circumstances of the deaths of so far been released. the next step for brags that after months of stalling and wrangling negotiations on britain leaving the european union are moving on to the second stage their past the divorce bill now what will the relationship look like after the split i'm sumi so much going to in berlin this is the day. we will set up and of negotiate a new trade deal with the european union she was a tough smart like them for the last year but also will be negotiating trade deals with other countries around the world face to can start but then even
harder work begins for sure the. second phase to be having more demanding more challenging to the the first phase will be delivering the bread sic the people thank you for. also coming up the story of linda w. a german teenager who went to iraq to join islamic state has its reasons i don't need to conclude i don't know how i came up with such a dumb idea i've completely ruined my life. we start with the breakthrough britain has been waiting for the european union says there has been enough progress on bragg's that negotiations to move to the next phase of talks on just how britain will leave the bloc it is a big boost for british prime minister theresa may she's been under a lot of pressure at home and in brussels more on that in a moment first a look at friday's breakthrough. this is what relief looks like on the faces of
european council president and commission presidential include the european union gives britain the go ahead for phase two of the brics in negotiations but it also warns that it will be dramatically difficult. for sure the. second phase should be. challenging the first face without the british premier present the other member states signed off on the european commission's recommendation that london had given enough guarantees on the most important divorce issues germany's angela merkel and french president call in a joint press conference emphasize the importance of putting on a united front lines i might seem we can only do well in these negotiations and build a strong relationship with great britain if we stand together as twenty seven if we start fighting over different interests it won't end well for anyone that is what unites us is that the law and. the agreements to move talks on also came as
a significant relief to british prime minister in may who responded from our home district in the south of england i'm pleased that it's been agreed we should make rapid progress on an internet period which will give certainty to businesses and individuals there's still more to do but we're well on the road to delivering a brics it. prosperous strong and secure while today's decision was pretty much a formality it is also an important milestone after moments where it looked as if negotiations between britain and the e.u. might collapse but now as many leaders today stressed comes the hard part face to of the negotiations will focus on the nitty gritty of the transition and future trade relations and it will be conducted largely on the terms of the european union . charlotte shell some tell was following the summit fire for us in brussels and she gave us the summary. yes a big win indeed it's not very often in this break that process that reason may and
e.u. leaders get to celebrate something but that is exactly what has happened today the twenty seven heads of states have decided that they can rubber stamp a deal that was struck between negotiators what that basically says is that there's been sufficient progress on three key issues three issues that need to be decided in the so-called phase one of tools and those things are the divorce bill as it's called how much money the u.k. the e.u. on citizens rights isn't she what happens to u.k. citizens living in europe in european citizens citizens living in the u.k. and on the northern ireland border what's going to happen after breaks it between northern ireland and its neighbor island which is still going to be in the in the e.u. so very complex issues it's been a very difficult road several attempts to reach an agreement on this failed in fact they were meant to reach an agreement here at the last summit in october and failed so big sighs of relief here today that finally they've done it. david
charter joins us here in the studio he is the berlin correspondent of the british newspaper the times has written two books on bragg's it david thank you for being with us so we're hearing enough progress to move to the next stage tell us more about what that next stage will look like we're hearing it's going to be even tougher than the first the e.u. is saying that it will be tougher than the first because well for two reasons really both sides the butchers saw it on the european union side have yet to agree on what they would like to achieve in this next round. the european union side is saying first of all we want to hear from you britain where you would like to go what relationship you want with us that's going to be agreed in the early in the first months of next year but there are some very hard bricks or two within the ruling british conservative party. who would like to have as much as possible.
in a trade relationship that means not just goods but also services on the e.u. side there are those who say hold on a minute you can't have all the benefits that you once had because you're leaving and that means yes we would like to trade in goods as well as we can but services financial services well perhaps we don't want to have banks that are based in britain and financial companies based in britain having such the access that they had before so trade is going to be a key issue in this next phase what are the other sticking points going to be moving forward rice well britain would like to have access for its airlines to fly around the european union just as it does now but i think there's pressure from some of the your big european airlines such as germany's love plants but also france that they perhaps would like to get their hands on some of those landing and taking off slots that are enjoyed by british airlines so that is not a given that is something that's going to have to be negotiated on the airline
front and on the migration and immigration from britain has not set out what the future access will be for e.u. citizens coming to travel and look for work in great britain we need to the european side needs to know how open will great britain be to workers from the european union will they need visas for example and then it will respond with its with its with its own system will british people need visas to go to the e.u. so that that to be a contentious issue and this is all coming against the backdrop of theresa may suffering a defeat at home members of her own party backing a move that would allow parliament to vote on any bragg's the deal how is that going to play out for her this was to reason is first defeat as prime minister in the house of commons and it was really. a threat to her or thora tea over her own party with eleven rebels you know joining the other side and being accused of
treachery and being traitors however despite all the pressure they did vote with the other size and what analysts say that gives them a taste for rebellion which doesn't bode well for future votes and there are a lot of of votes are going to be necessary to get bricks through the house of commons one of those what's next week this was to decide on the actual date for bragg that a march twenty ninth two thousand and nineteen is that said to be another challenge for theresa may yes but it looks like there may be a solution because the conservative party does not want to suffer another internal rebellion as it had last week and even now the government whips are trying to work out of a form of words that will satisfy these rebels and so that we don't have the spectacle of to reason a losing another vote her authority being sacked even further at this stage they will try and find a way of keeping the dates in the legislation but giving some flexibility given all
of that you know looking at this in the big picture how much pressure is theresa may under here and how much is this next stage really going to challenge her authority she has actually improved her position with today's agreement and last night's agreement in brussels she's on slightly firmer ground she is seen by the european union side as a prime minister who can steer through this very complicated and talen jing situation having said that there are a large number of much harder bricks of tears if you like in the her own party who would like to see have a prime minister in place who is a perhaps even tougher than her so she has still to steer a very difficult course to keep her job for the next year coming up the writer david charter the berlin correspondent of the times thank you very much for joining us here in studio. and here at g.w.
we've been looking at the different of pressure points of the negotiations in our road it to brag series as we heard trade is one of those pressure points. report now from the city of london where banks and traders desperately want to deal so they can continue to trade across the whole of europe but they are working on a plan just in case. every morning it's rush hour in london bridge the gateway into the financial district the city of london the city provides over one million jobs it's at the heart of the u.k. economy we want to find out how much to people in london's financial hub. and how are they preparing for it financial services are particularly vulnerable to roughly a third of all financial transactions here in the city of london and girls club. that's why companies already prepare for every possible scenario lloyds of london the global insurance company have had their offices in the city for almost three
hundred thirty years but now they are preparing to move more stuff to the continent . below its chief executive has been preparing for the worst which would be no trade deal about four billion euros of business is written by the lloyd's market here in london at the moment across the country so that is a significant amount of business that we've run the risk of losing lloyd's already have a presence on the continent now they are increasing it by about one hundred staff mainly in a new office in brussels it's been estimated that tens or even hundreds of thousands of finance jobs might be lost in london it's not yet happening on a big scale but it is on people's minds i think it's a terrible decision i think it's going to just be a lot of pain over the next two years it will still be right in the end there just be a lot of uncertainty until i guess or so now in terms or tried in terms of ideas i
think now we're going to be much worse off for it yeah that's why industry leaders are low being hard for a trade deal with the e.u. a lot of people in the city of london did not vote for brics it but now the time and to limit the damage too much is at stake for the u.k.'s most profitable industry. child bauman is the political representative of the financial services industry he regularly meets with to reason may end a government and desperately wants to press home his message so we want a transition arrangement as soon as possible on the proof provides for certainty for business beyond march two thousand and nineteen we're looking for. access to talent and third lives in the ocean to trade a comprehensive free trade ambitious free trade agreement the fear is that emotional arguments made when the bricks of negotiations that economic needs like
those of the city of london might be ignored as they were in the vote for brics it itself. still to come on the day what is a milkshake duck we take a look at the oxford dictionary as words of the years what they mean and why they're trending. not a growing questions here about how to deal with germans who have gone to fight for the so-called islamic state since two thousand and fourteen almost a thousand germans have traveled to the middle east to support the militant group one in five have been women and girls many of them are now returning home and germany's intelligence agencies warning that they could be a threat because they've been brainwashed by the islamists or one of those girls as lisa w. the german teenager married and i asked fighter in iraq who was later killed she says she made a mistake and she wants to come home but she is set to go on trial in baghdad it
was a cautious reunion with a family who traveled from germany to baghdad to see the seventeen year old who's in custody awaiting trial. pictures of her arrest in mosul in july were beamed around the world. identified only as linda w. she left her home in eastern germany to join the so-called islamic state now she regrets or has this vision of the only vehicle i don't know how i came up with such a dumb idea i've completely ruined my life yet. linda says she didn't take part in any fighting she says after the death of the i.a.s. member she married she stayed in various women's shelters and almost never stepped outside hundreds of women have left europe to join i.a.s. many of them are now in custody in iraq according to research by german media at least seven germans are among them until now german women who were not in combat but married to i.a.s. militants were rarely prosecuted back home now
a different legal approach is likely. where of the opinion that these women are guilty of membership of a foreign terrorist organization because they helped to strengthen the internal structure of the so-called islamic state but this question will ultimately have to be clarified by germany it's a federal court of justice. but. it's not clear whether linda w. would be prosecuted if and when she returns an investigation is underway but there's no warrant for her arrest in germany. journalist we have met linda wu for an interview in iraq and he's with us here in our studio i thank you so much for joining us tell us when and where you met linda. last because i met her once before three months of the last. office of the judge. in central vacs. with and have mother and sister they want to visit their
last two to be with. linda was different from the last visit i saw her as somehow stable more stable than before she got medical treatment should looks stable she understood what she is going to face what she did and what's happened for her it was not clear for me the last time i mean months before for the first time that i was in the stable she was. naif could not understood what she what she what she did what she what's going to wait in her so what changed in that time for her i think the prison time and also the thinking of or grief thinking about what happened why she did follow islamic state i think it's make clear that this is a huge problem for this is the most mistake that happened in her life and she told us i destroyed my my my lives my my protégé she no one is going to give me and the
. to war or to study i think. really that this situation is so very very tough for her and she's going to face a very difficult trial in iraq why did she decide to make this move what did she say to you about her motivation this is the most important question that i want myself to understand why she made that but from her i answer to her mother the first time that he's. after two years she told her mother why you came here because because of you i left home. she had very problem with her family inside the family she was fifteen years old the mother she felt that the mother cannot hear. understand or or take care of take
care of her and also she could follow she could full of their rights but she followed the state so what happens now is that she's in iraq what kind of sentence can she expect there according to the judge that we talk with him that he told us that exclusion shoes not going to face but i think she's going to face two two important things first illegal crossing the borders and also a membership of islamic state then which is it would be to. into iraq a lot maybe between three and five years old. by this woman so very serious punishment just briefly if she were to return to germany what could she face here according to the no situation she will not be. put in the prison or she will be free but i think the situation could change in the next months because the german government or german authorities thinking in the different for the legal way.
they are going to. dealing with the women coming back to germany for a journalist i mean with so we thank you so much for sharing your experiences with us thank you. well two thousand and seventeen is drawing to a close as you probably know it was another year of big news and rapid change with a slew of new words and phrases to describe it all so the oxford dictionary one of the bastions of english language has just published its word of the year out of the thousands to choose from nine made it to the shortlist let's take a look at a some of them the first is a news jack and if you've heard of this it's when people take advantage of new stories to push their own products or brands another is compromised you might have heard of this one during the russian best occasion in the u.s. it is information used for blackmailing or manipulating someone and then what about this one bro flick that's
a word used to describe conservative straight men who are easily offended by other views and lifestyles but at the winner of oxford's word of the year youth quake you know what it means well this one might be easier to break down than the other contenders but let's ask an expert fiona mcpherson is a senior editor at the oxford english dictionary she joins us from munich for more a few and i get to see you thank you for being on the day tell us about youth quake what does this mean. you create well it's a significant cultural political or a social change is a resonance from the influence of young people in the things that they do so so it's kind of the sum of its two parts really so why did this suddenly become popular. well i think there's been certain things that happen certainly in the election in the u.k. where young people a sort of group of people who are typically maligned and thought of as not being interested or energized about politics they came out and voted in their huge number
of quite a large voting bloc so that's definitely we've seen it this year and that's the reason we've actually seen such an increase in its usage but actually as a research has told us it actually goes back a lot further than a map be found example from him and hundred sixty s. when it was used in vogue magazine spending much to talk about who he now think of as the baby boomers the attitudes and the influence that they were having a new second fashion at the time so it's shifted a little bit at the moment in terms of where it's focused but yet the concept is still the same it's young people who bring about some kind of change because of what they're doing in and their influence young people causing an earthquake youth quake ok so how does the oxford dictionary actually come up with that's the word of the year there has to be so many contenders. well yes i mean you were joking words almost literally we have it is corporate of that we can analyze and look and see
which words are enjoying a meteoric rise which words are people talking about the movie and it comprises a lot of different news sources so we're trying to get a view global look yes it's not just about you know looking at words that are used in the u.k. say and then we can analyze all of this data and come up with the words which we think are saying something about the year and with huge quique we certainly find it been used i think almost five times more than i had been well almost before or been used as a toll. so that's how we do it we just see what words have got something to say about the you know one of those words that has something to say about that here was that milkshake docket some of our viewers have scratching their head and this goes back to a tweet by pixilated boat let's just take a look at the whole internet loves milkshake that the lovely duck the drinks
milkshakes are five seconds later we regret to inform you the duck is a racist this is kind of a word that we didn't know that we needed but somehow it sums it all up. well exactly and that's the great thing about language sometimes there are words there that we don't really realize that we don't need but then we wonder what we did without them i think i think that's that's obviously something like you are some of the words on our list like they're much more c.d.'s words which are maybe you know describing you will see these concepts but there's always room in language for a little bit of fun and i think it's one of these things and the idea that you know somebody can be the darling at one point and then we find something that we don't like quite so much and suddenly they've gone from zero to zero how short lived are these words and how much of social media play a role in deciding that. it's difficult to second guess how short lived some of these words are going to be i think some of them to get quick because as i said
before it goes back to the one nine hundred sixty s. something like that it's probably got more staying power and perhaps something like milk is going to be one of those words or those terms clear everywhere for a question or a period of time and then in five years time you know we don't even remember that that's the great thing about the word of the year though is that it doesn't have to be about words which are always going to have staying power and i think social media definitely helps because so much more access to all sorts of the cabbie really and in lust definitely plays a part in disseminating that and getting it to the attention of people and we quickly found out here in germany some people amend the fact that a lot more english words are entering the german language are things like a selfie fake news does it happen the other way around as well are more foreign words entering the oxford dictionary definitely english has always been influenced by other languages and i think jeremy actually is quite a nice quite nice example we've got words in english which i think people don't
think of them known as anything other links where it's inflation. kindergarten. which is on our list as well as actually show shortened from a longer german works because we completely ballers that as well it's the one which works different languages will influence them different other different languages and sometimes the lad which can just sit a little bit better i think all right at the two way street then senior editor at the oxford english dictionary fiona mcpherson thank you very much for joining us. well the day is nearly done but as ever the conversation continues online you'll find us on twitter either at d.w. news or at least that's me don't forget to use our hash tag the day and remember no matter what happens between now and tomorrow is another day you'll see that.

money. has almost we've lost a lot of land recently because of a roge and. how are we to live without our fields. this is only the beginning he gets worse every day it's impossible to survive and work. on the rivers coming close to our homes. or your garden was in just a few weeks it flooded entire tracts of land. the money. life here is terrible we could be submerged any moment they used to be a falling away. we watch out. the
people of module is nice and more a village feel like refugees in their own country they're living on land that's being gobbled up little by little by a capricious river the brahmaputra the island of marginally is located in the middle of the wide river with its heavily populated banks the island has been gradually disappearing for decades the erosion seems unstoppable. soon we won't be able to live here anymore. but the erosions too much don't want to go and whatever. we were about to harvest our rice on their way out o. the didn't in what i wanted by the hour it and the. want to get a nice brahmaputra and the soup and sciri come together here according to an
old legend the day these two rivers unite was a happy day but for us this confluence is a curse we've got hardly any land left and have become refugee and yes it's a huge catastrophe. then me marty get jetty only boats that supply module a with goods depart from here at the mouth he got jetty. it's a vital connection to all the islands in the brahmaputra the banks are in danger of
breaking away and have to be constantly fortified with sandbags water resources experts from the brahmaputra board a government body are tasked with fighting the floods and they were asian. now you are facing the state of our sanity is in a particularly tricky situation eighty percent of the land is flooded despite all efforts against erosion of take the island of majeure which is protected as a nature reserve it is now reduced by half in four to five decades time just because of really high erosion but it's not just about the loss of land you think of the poorest of the corps and even the rich become calder's overnight but that's true for all areas of the world at risk of flooding and water. but we have solutions you can reinforce the banks with sandbags and erect
a concrete defenses that's how you can come back to erosion not just on the brahmaputra but elsewhere to. the experts confidence is remarkable in view of the seemingly unstoppable erosion no one here believes that the battle against the force of the river can be successful and as climate change advances few believe the situation will improve instead people adapt to life with six months of plodding six months of a ration. when the water is too high we have to stop boat traffic to marginally but we only do that when things get really dangerous we have to fortify the harbor zones with sandbags otherwise we can't dock because of the erosion. the sandbags that we pile up around the shore protect the villages behind them and. the erosion is really powerful
here it's frightening. despite the protective measures one house after another slides into the water the residents of forced to leave their land and move to the island's interior. marginally is home to one hundred sixty thousand people who sooner or later become refugees that's a massive headache for the old artists the government has to find land for those made homeless and compensate farmers who have been ruined the files are piling up this problem has priority for the state of assam every year millions of dollars and made available. but the administration is overwhelmed by this crisis.
and all. about fifteen and a half thousand families are affected many have been resettled it to the mainland here in the go ahead along the coast that's in the district of joy and we asked the government to look after two thousand four hundred families directly. the remaining seven thousand five hundred and ninety families have fled to elevated land look this is the artificially elevated stretch. but they live side by side here but very close to the road when the river floods it'll take them with it. how can the question remains how can they protect their land with sandbags practically if it's not practical to pile up lots of sandbags we have to build dikes and dance but we mustn't forget about the problem of deforestation. in particular
we should be planting big trees. that protects against erosion developer. we have to concentrate on that in collaboration with the forestry department but. it's possible to watch the island of monte lay shrinking with a water penetrates the soil flooding the ground after every monsoon the land is covered by layer of sand in the space of just one year and time villages were cut off from the main island without roads there in a supplies the people are becoming climate refugees in that one country. this year
a russian cause severe damage to some of the most remote villages we are organizing a convoy for the area of mr mora to distribute aid to around two hundred families. to work on. the situation there today go to the villages and look for yourself. the situation there's extremely worrying. the people i don't have much to eat anymore and they're not safe at night either with. the humanitarian operations help and a very few. counter many impoverished villages on the way to me some order for a moment they believe our boat will stop and help them they quickly prepare a makeshift anchorage force will have to disappoint them.
but the handful of aid convoys don't change much either pengo has few illusions about that. only his fields are threatened by erosion the trees were cut down here to create agricultural land as a result the soil has become even more vulnerable. and. things are getting very tight for us in mr moore there's not much land left for us to live on so it would. and i'm not just thinking about myself all the
other residents are at a loss about what to do in the near couple to read when i read up with a look at your i would open the way to hear we used to have a huge field but now we have just enough to survive. all of that on the bike and we've lost almost all of our harley since our rice and lentils wobble nobody. had a bridge in new york was up in two or three days we would have been able to harvest this field this harvest was our only source of food. near the way i feel like crying and desperate all our work was for nothing
one of. our things today. a lot of land was lost this morning. and i'm just talking about this morning. how are we going to live. if things don't change in the next few days we'll have to make a decision the village in the fields will flood well let's wait until tomorrow but i don't have much hope. you can see what we're dealing with here but the government isn't helping us at all. in their protective measures to kill us the authorities can't find any more land for those made homeless we don't get any compensation for our losses
what the brahmaputra board has tried to protect us but without success it feels like they're abandoning us and all of them and i'm of none of the but. the people here want to understand why module is drowning in the floods the answer is not simple increasingly heavy monsoon rains a river that's growing as a result of the melting himalayan glassy as massive deforestation and even an earthquake that altered the course of the brahmaputra in one thousand nine hundred fifty but erosion research is making progress professor p.k. border lawyer oversees a team of young engineers. of yours the flood and the reason is there tonight i was
and last night i watched a television program it was about a woman. she lives on my julie on the banks of the brahmaputra she cried because a huge landslide had washed away her home in light of the difficult situation the government of assam a station the task force there to deal with the erosion and flooding. that was in one thousand nine hundred fifty four since then as sam has lost four hundred thousand hectares of land we can't get that land back. this is what majority looked like with its twelve hundred fifty six square kilometers the green section is what existed between one thousand nine hundred
nineteen and nine hundred twenty five everything was flooded to this orange area that part disappeared by nine hundred seventy two all we're left with is the violent section. what we other culprit this erosion is largely manmade you've already seen that the vegetation has disappeared but neither you nor i got rid of it that was done by the people living on the banks of the river making the land susceptible to erosion as a result the river changed its course and everything got worse should we be angry with these people think about it why did they do that they knew it would cause problems if they cut down all the trees but they live in such abject poverty it's a vicious circle. so it is of his yes i. wonder.
if five years ago four or five years ago a tsunami hit the shore of tamil nadu but two or three villages remained completely unharmed they were protected by the mangrove forests that absolved the shock and kept the surge away we can use this experience in the case of the brahmaputra we need to plant trees and they are our greatest hope with very little money we can work wonders. marginally is home to one man whose story has grabbed public attention he recognized the problem of deforestation and tried to solve it on his own over
decades the farmer has planted thousands of trees to save the land his name is john have pine but everyone calls him forest man. so this before i bought it thirty five years ago there was almost nothing but sand here that's when i started planting trees and bringing back the vegetation to places like this. people say my forest has saved this area from erosion. it's been protected by those trees for thirty five years. you can set up other protective measures in other places but not everywhere it's better to surround majuli with a green dam right there. that reduces erosion and we might even be saved. i've been planting trees for
a long time in india people call me forest man and this forest bears my name. when he has a. tad of prying is a tireless activist and a lone warrior when he was twenty it became clear to him what damage deforestation was causing nobody listened to him he was even threatened so he set to work on his own planting seed after seed thirty five years later this place has been transformed into a green paradise it's incredible that this forest is the work of a single man now the people of moderately are helping him as best they can. get a good little. this
man has brought dad after playing so saplings. they will go well in the forest but this one's not so good when i go the others are flawless i'll plant them over there. and history will grow very tall they're very useful to us. if. april or may and june are the best months for planting trees here mardi gras oils can become as drives the desert that's why we have to be quick i
plant the seeds in empty spaces and on small abandoned islands to accelerate the reforestation effort. why more you will not do that until i take my final breath it's my life's work i want to fulfill it. jad astore has gone around the world he has become an inspiration to conservationists sometimes forest man leaves his forest to give lectures and visit schools in india are and other countries but never for too long because he has to look after his trees. down. over time i've planted many trees they've turned into this huge forest there are big trees like those and there are some small ones and robust ones my seeds have turned into
strong trees. but this forest now covers four to five hundred hectares i've planted thousands of trees in the years. i got there. now it's home to elephants rhinos and tigers they have returned to the island. many plants and animals have found a new home here. for you yet or go to guy but if that's what the forest is there for you are home for all living things. the forest is almost twice the size of new york's central park the trees stand
strong defending the soil against advancing erosion. you. have it here somewhere you know what this isn't doable but they should come here and take a look for themselves. and then they should go home and crown trialist it's not that hard. you know by the way that. despite his achievements forest man is far from being adopted into the hindu pantheon in spite of the advancing desire to vacation on the island nobody else is dealing with the problem on the contrary the vulnerable villages continue to cut down trees and bamboo so that they can sell them before the brahmaputra gobbles up everything they're convinced they'll be the last generation to live here their children will just have to see what remains of modulating.
today is a special day. just after yang is visiting our school. we'll tell us how he's protecting the environment and. listen carefully one and only work . now. i'm sure you'll have heard of global warming trees play a very important role in that they help us fight climate change around the world that's why we have to protect trees and plant even more and if you see someone cutting down a tree tell him stop it. on the table and why we need these trees
right that they are not active and. you're responsible for the world of tomorrow it can't be to be. one of the children asks how trees stop erosion. their roots anchored deep in the ground they form a protective wall against erosion and they stabilize the soil. and i didn't go out and even when a tree falls into the river it's not useless because it slows the current on protecting the other trees on the riverbank you know. where you bugger low level. and.
it'll be your job to plant this tree when it's big it'll help give people better air to breathe but planting it isn't enough yet if they're going to get taken and you have to nurture it. and give it all your attention. to read an article or even a. dot ass efforts are any slowly bearing fruit it's a race against time because the survival of the island is at stake. the eco warrior and tree planter is at least one person and who will never give up . i am likes to cite the phrase attributed to mahatma gandhi be the
